A Canuck in the mix

Post by Intarsa » Mon Jul 04, 2016 10:03 pm

Hi Everyone, I'm one of them "Snow Mexicans" that the Donald don't think much of. :lol: I am new to this site but I have been on the Taurus X site for 6 years. I recently traded my 2008 T-Rex in for a 2015 Taurus SEL. I hope the Taurus is as good to me as the T-Rex was. So far I'm liking my Taurus. Very quiet ride and quite comfortable. Have whacked my head a couple times getting into it but hopefully with time that will stop. Either that or I will start wearing a hockey helmet while driving it :) Already I have a question - My new Taurus has 20" wheels and Michelin tires. My Taurus X had 17" tires. Do you think my 17" winter tires mounted on steel rims will fit the 2015 Taurus? I hate the thought of buying new 18" snows and new 18" rims. Cheers, all.

I found the answer to my 17"winter wheels question. From the Ford dealer... 17" wheels are more than the 6% tolerance allowed from original wheels. Therefore cannot be used with the AWD model. This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I know that I have the 20" wheels on now but the majority of Taurus' have 18" factory wheels. In my mind the 17's should work.
